>Something I Don’t Get About Google Alerts

>Google Alerts is supposed to be a great tool, and I have a really unusual name so it should be easy. The thing is, I get the same page, the same mention of my name, fairly regularly. One of the few other Auriette’s in the world is a racehorse. She was racing ’96-’98, from what I can tell. These same old articles keep showing up in my Google Alerts. I’m alerted about some of my tweets. Today I got an alert about a comment I made on another person’s blog three weeks ago. I don’t receive alerts about most of the blog prizes that I win, which are often posted on the giveaway blog. I signed up for Google Alerts to try to help me find out about wins, just in case the sponsor doesn’t notify me directly or the e-mail gets lost. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t seem to work that well.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have three cats and a husband.
